Egg Tarts

This is a very easy recipe and they taste just like the ones you get from the Chinese bakeries.  Enjoy ! (It was my daughter’s idea to make a happy face with the tarts !)

Makes about 16

  • 3 eggs
  • 60 mLs evaporated milk
  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 150 mLs hot water
  • 1 teaspoon custard powder
  • 16 frozen pastry shells, 3″ (store-bought )
  1. Preheat oven to 350°F
  2. Melt sugar in hot water, let cool
  3. Whisk eggs well
  4. Whisk in evaporated milk, custard powder and sweet water until smooth
  5. Place pastry shells on cookie sheet
  6. Strain mixture and pour into pastry shells
  7. Bake for about 22-25 minutes or until middle of custard pop up slightly

You may need to thaw pastry shells for a few minutes before baking, please follow instructions on box. Don’t let custard pop up too much or it will drop and become wrinkly when cooled.
